    I worked at Kilroy Realty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Very sleek, modern office -"Open Air" cubicles -Good amenities -Nice 401k -Free snacks, beverages, etc.

    Cons

    -Internal promotion is EXTREMELY difficult (unless you have bosses who actually pay attention) -False "open door" policy -Long hours -Massive disconnect between "upper management" and "support staff" (VP & above) -Company culture -Lack of employee appreciation -When an employee continually (for years) causes strife and grief within your team - LET THEM GO.

    Advice to Management

    CARE. The amount of disconnect between upper management and the support staff is so monumental it incentivized me to leave. Looking back, there were/are a lot of great things about Kilroy - the office was excellent, almost all of the employees were very nice to work with, great perks... But overall, I cannot say it was enough to make me stay. The executives are so "busy" that not only do they not take time to acknowledge...

    Pros

    Environment surrounds you with a number of extremely smart and experienced professionals. Great benefits.

    Cons

    It’s a very flat/horizontal structure and at times that can lead to large work loads

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within, while at times bringing in professionals with different perspectives and experience

    I worked at Kilroy Realty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ok benefits, that's about it

    Cons

    Where do I start? Awful Culture, Terrible misconduct between VPs and above and their team members. Loooooong hours consistently, false promises re: Time off and bonuses

    Advice to Management

    There are some wonderful courses out there to learn how to manage a team and your outdated mgt style from the 1970's. You can also engage a L&D Training Company to help you here. Stop swearing at your employees please?
